  • The next deadline for proposals is 5:00 p.m. = 1700 hours Eastern Daylight Time (21 hours UT) on 1 October 2009.

  • The Proposal Submission Tool is currently implemented for VLA, GBT, and VLBA/HSA proposals; for the 1 October 2009 proposal deadline, all VLA, GBT, and VLBA/HSA must be submitted via the PST. We no longer accept proposals for the VLBA and HSA prepared via the LaTeX template and submitted via email.
